Summer Series – Alternative Activities

Name of Board: Burnsville

County: Yancey

Grantee: Partners Aligned Toward Health

Title of Project: Summer Series – Alternative Activities

Description of project: Every week during the summer, an activity was made available for youth and young adults, (I.e. bicycle race, reading, zip line, spelling bee, yoga, etc.)

Why you chose it: Partners Aligned Toward Health does really good work, and they give us a detailed quarterly report on how the dollars were spent. We didn’t get that from the previous provider we gave dollars to.

Who this project impacted: The kids and the community. 

Results of project: Giving kids alternatives to drinking has promoted health and wellbeing at an early age.
